It maybe way to early to start optimising for the way the new Google + location page appears on the search pages. (it seems Google places now has ceased to exist and has been replaced by Google + location page).

My problem is my site does not appear anywhere on in the 6 or 7 location pages that are thrown up. when it was google places it always had a place somewhere. the website itself ironically appears on page 1.

So do I have a problem here or have I got to start optimising for the Google location page again.

I have read about it and it seems reviews help to bolster appearance of the site. but when i loook at other sites above me none of them have reviews. i have to say i rarely ever use Google +. could this be an issue? I know this is the whole reason for this change as far as google is concerned anyway! To get me using Google +!!
